Nice, clean, calm, has a very cozy restaurant "Balkon" on the first floor, where breakfast is nice ! It is not expensive ! Wifi works a bit slowly, but it does ;) pressure of the water in the shower could be higher... but is all good ;)

I went on business trip to Almaty and I paid less than 40 euros (17 000 KZT) for a single room in this good hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean with the flatscreen TV. The hotel is located conveniently close to major streets and entertainment places and different bars on Dostyk avenue. The breakfast was somewhat limited. It takes 30-40...

Check in was good, the front office staff are fluent in English and very responsive. Quiet big and clean rooms. The restaurant downstairs is good and the hotel guests are entitled for a discount ( last time it was 20% off during dinner time). There is no kettle in rooms, but it's available upon request. The buffet breakfast is decent....

The location is good, close to the center anв so on. Rooms are pretty good for their price. But the hotel has no lobby at all, so you can't setup any meetings there. Instead you'll be using the Balcon restaurant, which is quite expensive. I would recommend you this hotel if all you are planning to do there is to...
